Hi all! Yes, I actually do have 16 kids (8 bio/8 adopted/9 have special needs) but only 9 still live at home. Needless to say, there is little time or energy for much of anything else. I’m 52 and struggling with my weight. I am desperate to lose 25ish lbs in the hopes it will help my hip pain from having newly discovered hip dysplasia, and injuries from a car wreck two years ago. The Drs all recommend a double hip replacement. I’m doing all I can to push that to a later date because it’s just my husband and myself caring for our kids and I can’t imagine him doing it alone while I recover.
